Annual Giving Campaign 2017 is OPEN for donations!
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Every year, the Board determines which elements of the school’s well-being need the most attention. This year, the Board has identified three areas that would most benefit from your contributions: beautifying the exterior walls of the building, fortifying the security system, and sponsoring a classroom. Beautify, fortify, sponsor!
The exterior walls are one of the first things people see when they visit the school. Over the years the building’s exterior has started to show its age. We want to make sure the outside is as welcoming, solid, and beautiful as the inside — and we can accomplish that with a few coats of paint. We estimate the cost of this job to be approximately $5,000. Any contribution — from two dollars to two thousand — will help!
London Waldorf School hosts a lot of after-hours events and activities, including faculty meetings, parent-teacher interviews, class meetings, and special events. It is important to ensure that the building is secure while these activities are happening, so that participants can focus on taking part in activities, instead of monitoring the building and its valuable contents. We plan to implement a security system in phases. Phase one includes a keypad entry at the back door for after-hours access. The hardware and software for this costs approximately $5,000. Over the next year, we aim to install a complete system with items such as secure keyless entry for all doors, programmable locks and codes, and better lighting. Please consider giving to this important project. Any contribution will help!
As you may know, tuition fees do not cover the school’s operating costs. We rely on annual gifts and donations from donors like you to cover these costs, and are grateful for the help we receive. It is because of your help that our classrooms are replete with supplies and comforts — and the need is ongoing. For a donation of $400, you can sponsor one of our classrooms for a week! Or you can share the cost 50/50 for $200! We have a goal of 40 full sponsorships! Your sponsorship will pay for everything the classroom needs to operate: paper, main lesson books, beeswax crayons, pencil crayons, paints, water for the cooler, hydro for the lights, janitorial services, and the other boring-but-essential items and services that make our classrooms feel like home.
Please consider making a contribution to one (or more) of these initiatives. The school is happy to accept your donations throughout the year, but the timeline for these projects is more precise, since they need to fit into this year’s budget. Please make your donation to one of these projects by May 31, 2017.
